Title: The magnetics of the Nairne Pyrite Formation
Author: Thiele, W. K.
Issue Date: 1961
School/Discipline: School of Physical Sciences
Abstract: The Nairne Pyrite Formation is a sedimentary sulphide deposit occurring near the base of the Kanmantoo series of rocks. The average sulphide content of the formation is 10%, half of which consists of pyrrhotite. The measurement of susceptibility and permanent remnant magnetism of the formation, ground magnetic surveys across the horizon, and the analysis of aeromagnetic maps covering the northern area of outcrop are described. The results obtained are discussed and some conclusions drawn on the applicability of magnetic prospecting to the search for this deposit.
